We dined here with an old friend, and spent the evening enjoying a fabulous meal, and great conversation. No hovering waiters, a very relaxed atmosphere. A perfect evening.

This was an accidental find
This was an accidental find for us. I've driven by many times but never thought to stop until it appeared on Open Table. The service was wonderful and the food was just as amazing. I was impressed with the inspirational use of ingredients and seasonings while still keeping true to it's Italian roots. I believe this will become one of our "go to" spots.

Great Italian - Outstanding Service
The overall experience was one of the best we have ever experienced at a restaurant. We were on vacation and as much as we could have eaten at any number of restarants in the Brentwood/Beverley Hills area, we enjoyed the food and service so much that we went there for dinner 3 out of 4 evenings. If you looking for great Italian food with outstanding service and are in the Brentwood, Santa Monica, Malibu area, this restaurant is a must visit.

Exceptional service, food, and view
My girlfriend and I came in for just a glass of wine and to enjoy the beautiful view of The Americana, the wait staff worked as a team making sure everyone was happy, and very suggestive on what to pick from off the menu. The wine list was impressive, the Caprese Salad that her and I split was amazing, the mozzarella was so fresh and amazing, I was almost convinced they made it there. The waiter informed me they don't but they bring it in fresh everyday. If you want a romantic spot, I highly suggest this place. Sit on the patio even if it's cold. They have heaters everywhere to keep you nice and toasty. You also get to enjoy the view of the fountain, and beautiful classic music playing in the background.

Happiness at Amici's
Always delicious. The owner Tancredi, always greets us. The food is excellent, particularly the Whitefish and black mussels. In fact the entire menu is great !

As visitors to LA, we picked AMICI BRENTWOOD from the OpenTable list and we are so glad we did. Easy to find location, lots of atmosphere, service was very good, food was excellent. A very comfortable place to spend an evening dining out!

Whenever we want a delicious meal with an intimate atmosphere, we go the Amici. The food is always fresh and perfectly prepared. And we know we'll always be able to hear ourselves talk, which seems to be increasingly rare these days. We brought friends we hadn't seem in awhile, and now they love Amici too.

Great service and food
Went there for a graduation dinner there were nine of us and a wide variety of food and everything was great. I will definitely plan to return the next time I'm in Southern California. The service was great and friendly, and helpful in making great recommendations.

Very nice salad and sour dough
Very nice salad and sour dough bread plus lavoche with hummus and tomatoes as two side toppings to enhance your introduction to dinner. Friendly service. Veal Milanaise was dry. Ravioli good as was the Veal Scalapini. Nice cookies with chocolate sauce as a treat from the restaurant to conclude the meal.

Special and memorable
My husband and I went here for our 3-year anniversay. We were looking for a romantic spot with a neighborhood vibe. The reviews for Amici were excellent so we decided to give it a try.
We were absolutely blown away. The service was the best we've experienced in a long time. Our server gave us great recommendations and helped us customize our dishes so we could get the best of everything. When the food came, we couldn't stop raving about how amazing it was. And the cozy atmosphere made our dinner a special one to remember. The night was absolutely perfect.
When we left, every person who worked at the restaurant thanked us for coming. We can't wait to go back for our next special occasion.

We were visiting in the Brentwood area and selected Amici blindly based on Open Table reviews. It was one of the most authentic Italian restaurants I have been to in a long time, with a wonderful menu and comprehensive wine list. From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with friendly, warm and prompt service and were made to feel at home. The food was exceptional. I wished we lived closer so we could go there more often.

Good bread and delicious hummas
Good bread and delicious hummas starts the meal and cookies with chocolate dip are provided on a complimentary basis at the end of your meal. In between, the artichoke salad was excellent, pasta good and the chicken parmesian was ok. The atmosphere is pleasant. The waiter was caring, but we had to ask for pepper, parmesian cheese and he forgot my friend's diet coke until we reminded him. His personality and willingness to comply made up for mistakes that should not occur in a good restaurant. We would certainly go back.

Great food, service & ambience BUT:
Although we have enjoyed Amici Brentwood for quite a few years, often taking our extended family there, we became aware on our last visit that they have substantially raised their prices not only for food but for wine also. One of the lower prices for wine was $90 and the salad prices are now + or - $13. Although we enjoy Amici's food and service very much, we will not be going there as often. Our last visit for 6 people with one bottle of wine cost over $400 with tip. Too bad.

Amici is one of my favorite places to dine anywhere in LA. The food is always authentic and the atmosphere inviting. Whether I am dining with a friend, or my entire family, it fits the bill. Standout dishes include eggplant parmesan, branzino and brodetto (fish soup like Bouillabaise).

Very good authentic Italian food at Amici...particularly good for lunch.
Warm, inviting atmosphere, conveniently located between Brentwood and SM at corner of 26th and San Vicente. Meal begins with excellent bread and delicious hummus, as well as fresh bruschetta dip, and cookies with chocolate dip are provided on a complimentary basis at the end of your meal. Service is always warm, friendly and helpful. Their salads are excellent, and my favorite dish is their Tagliata (steak salad)...just outstanding! Worth a visit...very good pizzas, pastas and desserts!

When we lived in Brentwood,
When we lived in Brentwood, this was our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Four years now since moving to San Diego, we always visit Amici when we take a trip to L.A. Thanks for being on Open Table - it makes it so easy!

Like the quiet in the middle of a stormy day, lunch at Amici Brentwood is delicious and calming.

Great Gluten Free Pizza
I had just come back from two weeks in Italy and was craving good pizza and pasta. This was perfect for my cravings. I was pleasantly surprised that they not only had GF penne but spaghetti as well. My daughter who is not GF ate my leftovers and thought the pasta was amazing also..
